Slaves Of The Moon , 30 x 40”
By Laura Barbosa
Acrylics and Ink on Canvas
This is a piece of art which was developed out of my Love for Werewolves and the Macabre. Metallic Silver Ink adds energy to this piece and the Werewolf turns into a Demon by the full moon.
Werewolves are often granted extra-human strength and senses, far beyond those of both wolves or men. The curse of lycanthropy was also considered by some scholars as being a divine punishment. Werewolf literature shows many examples of God or saints allegedly cursing those who invoked their wrath with werewolfism. The first feature film to use an anthropomorphic werewolf was Werewolf of London in 1935. (wikipedia)
Ever try to paint while having a migraine? No it’s no fun at all. I finally gave up after the first minute of dipping my brush in paint. My headaches always lasts for 3 days, some say it is a hormonal thing and others say it is stress. Vomiting also accompanies this unwanted pain in the head! They seem to strike when I have a lot of orders and custom paintings are at the top of the list. I am finally migraine free but still have a bit of head cramps and I’m tired…I really have to get some medication for these crazy migraines! I tried Imitrex but the feeling was weird so I stopped. Taking NSAIDS isn’t good either because they burn an enormous hole in your stomach…The one natural cure I have tried and it worked for a couple of minutes was rubbing lemon on my temples. This seemed to relieve the pain for a while. If it’s not one thing it is another to put you back on your work orders… Migraines and Art don’t mix :0)
Fine Art America has really done some great things with their website and their print on demand program is top of the line. Custom framing and matting options can be incorporated into your order and they also offer greeting cards of your favorite artwork. I really love their canvas prints. My art is being uploaded daily to my new fine art america website at about 3 to 4 new pieces per day. The photos below are my most recent prints ready to order. ENJOY~

I have decided to start Specializing in Unique Originals for Home Staging and Home Decor. I am currently working on New Contemporary Abstract Paintings for Offices and Business establishments with CUSTOM COLOR COMBINATIONS to match their spaces. My first love is really working with individual home stagers to supply a flow of constant art custom designed with colors to match their furniture etc…At the current time I am taking on new clients and dedicating myself to decorating their entire homes for staging purposes. I can only take one or two constant clients at a time. All my work is handmade but should be cheaper than framed prints. The gallery canvas I use has no staples on the sides and needs no frame, ships ready to hang. You can order the sizes you need for behind the couch or any wall space. I am offering FREE SHIPPING TO ALL USA RESIDENTS and Free consultations. Orders must come in ahead of time because I am one artist living on my work. If you are interested ….please send me a message! ~CHEERS
